Protected in his crystal palace

he inspects the world around him

A self-appointed King

his pleasure is borne

on the backs of his subjects

Resolute in their mission

minions set to work

diligently, earnestly

for a job that

brings its own reward

Entertained by chaos created

by unattainable rules

proclaimed in his name

the king had no shame

witnessing the suffering

Still, peasants labored

finding sweet satisfaction

as they gathered the sharpest stones

that just gods created

solely to shatter crystal
